In this paper we propose a novel method for video quality prediction using video classification. In essence, our approach can serve two goals: (1) To measure the video quality of compressed video sequences without referencing to the original uncompressed videos, i.e., to realize no-Reference (NR) video quality evaluation; (2) To predict quality scores for uncompressed video sequences at various bitrates without actually encoding them. The use of our approach can help realize video streaming with ideal quality of Service (QoS). Our approach is a low complexity solution, which is specially suitable for application to mobile video streaming where the resources at the handsets are scarce.
